that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> why did you pick her to tell us about benghazi? what does she have to do with benghazi? did anybody ask her for additional security? she's the united nations ambassador. >> you don't end up on every single major sunday show without affirmatively putting yourself out there of wanting to carry forward a message on behalf of the administration. >> i don't think we are doing very well in the u.n., quite frankly. they did a good job on libya, but china and russia are walking all over us. i think she is more political operative than anything else, when it comes to benghazi. >> one of the questions here is really who in different parts of our government knew what about what happened? knew the faces about what happened in benghazi on 9/11 and did they share it with everybody else? >> obviously, it's very troubling that ambassador rice' rendition turned out to be incorrect. and we need to get to the bottom of that. >> you want to get to the bottom of benghazi, have
frontrunner to be the next secretary of state. republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham have called rice unthus worthy and unqualified for a promotion for her comments that an anti-muslim video triggered the benghazi attack that skilled four americans. president obama insisted the ambassador was simply making a presentation based on the available intelligence and had tough words for the senators. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity at the state department department, then i will nominate here. >> eliot: much more on that a little later in the program. the president also reached out to the g.o.p. on immigration reform and offered an idea that he would like to see from congress. >> obama: whatever process we have needs to make sure that border security's strong, needs to deal with employers effectively, needs to provide a pathway for the undocumented here needs to deal with the dream act kids and
hand he also voted for the ryan budget. finally, lindsey graham, collaborated with democrats on issues like immigration and climate change but is up for re-election in the very red state of south carolina in 2014. he will probably feel pressure from the right to stand firm. joining me now is sahilkapuh. he wrote the article about the five republican senators who might work across the aisle. he joins us from washington d.c. i'm also joined by our favorite democratic strategist, donnie fowler. thanks donnie, thanks, is sahil for joining me inside "the war room." can harry reid bring those republican senators over to avoid a filibuster if not all of them? maybe some of them and which of the republicans is most likely to come over? >> it really depends on which issue. i think the bigger the issue the more hot button it is. if you take something like taxes or climate change or immigration, issues like that will be an uphill climb to win over any republicans. as i mention the article the most likely republican to
-profile nomination fight. mccain and lindsey graham said he will not support the nomination of ambassador rice if she's nominate. >> we will do what we can do block the nomination. >> i don't trust her. i thought she should know better. if she didn't snow better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> their chief complaint is they disqualified herself several days after the benghazi on a slew of shows, including "meet the press." >> our current assessment is what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction of what had transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations at our facility in cairo. >> at his news conference, a visibly angry obama fired back. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her representation is outrageous. >> well, mccain didn't want to have the president to have the last word. and he raced to th
the roof off that room today. did you see this? >> senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today that they want to have watergate-style laerhearings on attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. and that if you nominate susan rice for secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. as senator graham said, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter from making a nomination like that? >> first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nominations that i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the succeecond term. those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to
nation's foreign policy. schumer and graham talking their idea today. it includes a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants living in the united states. >> deportation is not going to work. fix it in a way we don't have a third wave of illegal immigration 20-years from now. that is what americans want they want to fix illegal immigration after all. they will do nothing until you secure the border be identified start paying taxes pay a fine for the law they broke. they can't stay unless they learn their language and they have to get in the back of the line. >> senator graham and i have talked and we are resuming the talks that were broken off two years ago. we are putting together a comprehensive detail blue print on immigration reform. it had the real potential for bipartisan support based on the theory that most americans are for legal immigration very much against illegal immigration. >> they are developing a document to make sure they are hiring them to work in the country. >> the death toll rising from a strong earthquake. 12 people killed.
. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with john mccain's clip if we can. dan, this is john mccain on -- john mccain by the way who voted to approve condoleezza rice as secretary of state. talking about susan rice. here's the clip. >> susan rice should have known better and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i would do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. she has proven that she either doesn't understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. >> john: that was the man who thought sarah palin was qualified to be president talking about someone who doesn't understand. now not to be outdone senator lindsey graham, the most interesting of all southern republicans i would say came out a few hours later and took a break from his momentarily bouts of sanity to say this. >> die trust her in two ways. if she didn't kn
. every time you hear lindsey graham or somebody saying we've got to stop this, let's keep in mind -- >> bill: they did it. >> part of it. the bush era tax cuts were put in place for only ten years because they didn't want -- they didn't think they could get the 60 votes to extend them permanently. that created this -- a good part of the tax aspects of it. the same thing was true with the payroll tax expansion. they demanded a one-year cut to the end of the extension. there, they happened because of the deal on the debt ceiling last year. >> it came out of mitch mcconnell's office. harry reid went along with it. mcconnell voted for it. john mccain who is a big critic of the defense part of the sequester, it was he voted for it. paul ryan voted for it. so you know, i'm not saying democrats are blameless here or don't deserve some of the responsibility but the idea that republicans are washing their hands and saying this is a white house ploy is completely wrong. >> bill: i was at the white house friday when president
provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> stephanie: i'm telling you he's a fan of american president president. >> announcer: stephanie miller. >> he did mention eating sand. >> stephanie: that's real leadership. that's not sand. >> sound bite: people want leadership mr. president genuine leadership. they'll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. they're so thirsty for it. they'll crawl through the desert like a mirage. >> cenk: youmirage. >> stephanie: you guys know how this ends. >> they drink the sand because they don't know the difference. >> stephanie: way out of your league bob--what is his last name. >> i've never seen the movie bob woodward? >> you're fired. >> stephanie: bob rumsford, and i'm running for president. >> mr. president, you're going to
graham saying "we have nobody to blame but ourselves when it comes to losing hispanics. i intend to tear this wall down and pass an immigration reform bill that's a solution to an american problem." softening towards immigration reform is even happening among some fox news channel personalities. of course, not on fox news channel, but on the radio shows. but still, it's happening. so immigration reform may be more within the realm of possibility in the near term than it has been for a long time. last week on thursday, two days after the election, mark kelly, the husband of gabrielle giffords made a statement at the sentencing hearing of the man who shot her and 18 other people outside a tucson supermarket. it included a poignant call for a restoration to sanity on gun policy in this country for at least a return to what used to be the gun laws in america "we have a political class afraid to do something as simple as having meaningful debate about gun laws and how they are being enforced. we have passed up the opportunity to address this issue. after columbine, virginia tech, aurora, we h
cain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> that's the slow burn from the president, i'd say. this morning mccain had some strong words for his former opponent, the president. let's listen to mccain. >> i know that people don't come to spontaneous demonstrations with rockets and mortars, and for the president of the united states for two weeks afterwards to deny that that was the case is either a cover-up or it is incompetence. >> one of mccain's main allies, senator lindsey graham of south carolina, also responded to the president. he said, quote, "mr. president, don't think for one minute i'm not going to hold you ultimately responsible for benghazi. i think you failed as commander in chief before, during, and after the attack." what's behind all this anger? is it political or personal? and why are they unleashing so much vitriol against amb
the nation" today lindsey graham said while republican was not support raising taxes, they would consider other ways of raising revenue as part of a comprehensive plan. >> failure is not an option for the country when it comes to fiscal cliff. >> glor: house speaker john boehner held a conference call with his members telling them compromise was needed. obama senior advisor david axelrod called boehner's comments to members encouraging. >> i think there are a lot of ways to skin this cat so long as everybody comes with a positive, constructive attitude toward the task. >> glor: if the automatic spending cuts happen, exactly 50% of the board without fall on the pentagon. national security correspondent david martin lays out what that would mean. e> reporter: the dreaded sequestration would double the $500 billion in cuts the pentagon is already planning to make over the next decade. defense secretary panetta has not minced words about what that would mean. >> if a sequestration is allowed to go into effect it will be a disaster for national defense. >> reporter: according to panetta the ne
. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. megyn: but if the president believed that their best intel five days after the attack suggested the video was to blame, then why did we see this moment in the presidential debates, the second one, where he claimed he was calling this terror from day one? >> i think it's interesting the president just said something which is that on the day after the attack he went in the rose garden and said that this was an act of terror. you said in the rose garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. it was not a spontaneous demonstration. is that what you're saying? >> please proceed, governor. >> i want to make sure we get that for the record, because it took the president 14 days before the he called the act of terror -- >> he did, in f
is saying guys change you're approach to this game. >> lindsey graham said that exact statement a month and a half ago and it will mean absolutely nothing. i think the republican party as a national party is on a death spiral. if there was someone who could make that determination hey we've got to reach out to latinos. we've got to reach out to single women. we got to reach out to african-americans not just put them, you know, find a couple and put them on the stage at the convention but have policies that in some way are not antagonistic towards these people. even if there was a voice within the republican party of saying, they're incapable of doing that. there is too much mis-aligned agenda in the party. they've created a frankenstein. it's now running through the streets, and there is nothing that dr. frankenstein can do. >> cenk: i think dr. frankenstein was slain last night, but you're right giving back to the republican convention when the camera would scan across the audience, it was exclusively moon monochromatic. and tokenism was the theme of the moment. it was obviously a fail
. >> very busy. on capitol hill senator john mccain, lindsey graham and others are calling for a select committee of watergate style select committee bipartisan but we'll get to the bottom of mostly the benghazi case but also look at the situation with petraeus and his testimony on benghazi in particular. they feel it is not good enough to have separate hearings on the intel side as well as the military armed services side and want to come together to get to the bottom of the benghazi affair. as mentioned, david petraeus offered today to testify. dianne feinstein confirmed will testify before the senate intel committee later this week. they are still negotiating if it will be off-site and what the ground rules will be. we understand he will not reveal the affair with his biographer, will strictly be about his role in benghazi and what he found on that mission when he went to libya just two weeks ago. that is what is going on at capitol hill. investigation into the petraeus affair with the fbi continues. the dod, inspecto inspector genl investigation into john allen who is now understood
section. >> two plus two equals seven. everybody knows that. >> stephanie: okay. >> i'm sure tim graham will enjoy that at myth busters. >> stephanie: love you tim. kids we keep this ramshackle operation running by going to pc dot? for many of us our jobs are demanding. most of my day consists of cocktail hours so i need to package my work into a neat little bow. that's why i rely on my pc. it's the powerfully simple tool that keeps you connected to your business wherever you are. it turns any pc, tablet or smart phone into your office computer. you remember save, edit and send files? the olden days, may friend. now your work computer will be everywhere you are whether you're working from home, traveling, you will never have to carry a flash drive again. >> do you remember when i left all of the audio files at home and i had to race home and get them. >> stephanie: i remember that. >> that was before go it my pc. i didn't like that. >> stephanie: do you remember when i had to go back home to get my show prep, and then the arm came down on my car and i yelled the f-word right on the air.
a consensus. it sounds like schumer and graham will be working on some kind of plan. >> bill: our numbers are so short. one of the first things george w. bush did was put in an immigration reform package in front of the republicans and congress killed it because the talk show hosts went crazy with amnesty. remember that. >> oh, yes. >> bill: big protests. and trent lott and others just -- had just dropped it. >> i think they feel now they have no choice. they either do it or they're done. >> bill: so think progress is going through the other things on your site. has your name on it. texas megachurch pastor. >> oh, boy. you know you're in trouble. robert jeffers what's his latest? >> this is a guy you'll remember, at the voter summit back in 2011 was a big rick perry supporter. we saw rick perry romney fight in the primary. introduced him. and said after to reporters including think progress that mormonism was a cult. that real christians have a real choice in this election. between rick perry presumably
of the senators now, graham said that she's interested in immigration reform. they have to get involved in serious legislation to make sure that something happens and weapon recognize that we have particularly in the latino community, are active, powerful and influential and they're going to do something about it. i see a lot of change this year. it's a real awakening on some of these issues. as for the fiscal cliff we're going to be able to negotiate and we're going to be able to do something about a combination of taxes, and programs, discretionary programs. so i'm looking forward to the negotiations. >> i hope so, congresswoman. it's interesting. i'm sure you've seen clips on t.v. of george bush talking about mandates and political capital that he earned. obviously, what the president truly has a mandate. this is two electoral land slides i mean landslides in a row. he said obviously, you know, basically this question over and overcame up and americans voted for, you know, the rich to pay their fair share right? >> caller: that's absolutely true. it was very clear in this election that the poin
